What is Psychiatry?

Being strong enough in your psychology is extremely important in terms of increasing your body resistance and protecting your mental health. Many physical and hereditary conditions cause you to experience psychological problems. These problems can sometimes manifest as mood disorders and sometimes as behavioral disorders. In order to overcome these, therapy can be provided in sessions. In addition, if the psychiatrist deems it necessary, these therapy sessions can be supported by regular drug use. Both pharmacotherapy, that is, drug treatment; and psychotherapy, that is, mental therapy, are the methods actively used in the psychiatry clinic.

The psychiatry clinic offers therapy services for children, adults and couples. In particular, child and family counseling is a service that has recently been used by parents who aim to raise healthy children. Our department, which hosts expert psychiatrists in the Private Denizli Cerrahi Hospital, carefully manages the comprehensive examination and treatment processes. Regular sessions allow your doctor to observe your progress and give you feedback.
